Living History: Spanish Medicine

November 22, 2014 @ 4:00 am - 7:00 am

$2 - $7

When the Spanish soldiers and their families settled Tubac in 1752, there was no doctor or surgeon among them. It was the responsibility of the women to treat their family’s physical complaints and wounds. Medicine was basic and dependent on herbs and plants known for their healing properties. This living history program features a display of medicinal herbs and plants, and knowledgeable commentary by an herbalist who will tell visitors how these plants were used by “curanderas” (healers) to treat illness and injuries. Included with park admission, $5 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free.
